Kenwood Club, Chicago, IL, 1896, Original Plan

A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Kenwood Club in Chicago, Illinois. HAND-COLORED. Patton & Fisher and Charles S. Frost, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, May 30, 1896.

This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 13.25 by 17.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures 16 by 19 inches (with border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.

Plan is in VG+ condition.
